I'm trying to figure out what figures might have been available in the
past for zodiac signs for my conculture. I guess it really doesn't
matter. There are so many stars that anybody can see anything he wants
in them. The constellations of today only vaguely resemble what they're
named for. I suspect that, at least in some cases, the name was chosen
before the constellation was found. "I'd like to have a lion in the
sky. Let me see if I can find a star formation that looks like a lion!"
